The downUNDER is a librarian-supervised, free, after-school program open on a drop-in basis to students in grades 6 and up. The downUNDER is a place where students can receive homework help, utilize a computer lab, or simply hang out with friends. Students may also participate in daily activities from crafts and gaming to trivia organized and lead by the Young Adult Librarian. The downUNDER is open Monday-Thursday from 2:50-4:45pm when school is in session.
